Everything I've ever had here was outstanding! My personal favorite is the Szechuan Chicken. The lunch or dinner menu are both very reasonably priced. Try the dumpling soup too.

I've been eating here for 10 years now and I live in California! Every time I go visit Detroit my two boys and I make it a must to come have the delicious wonton soup. My kids love how simple the ingredients are. However you must order the pork pan fried dumplings, it's those yummy guys that keep us commuting... More

Go to this restaurant for delicious Asian cuisine! I always go for Cashew Tofu or Curry Tofu....Whatever you choose will be fresh and delicious and don't forget the fortune cookies! The owner and all the staff are very friendly and courteous!

You’re hungry, perhaps on a date, and don’t have loads of money to spend on a meal. My best recommendation is visiting China Ruby, a Chinese restaurant in downtown Ferndale. In a storefront that once housed an American-style diner, China Ruby is noted for its delicious and inexpensive Szechuan, Hunan and Cantonese cuisine. For starters, try the tangy hot-and-sour soup...

There's a reason why this restaurant wins a handful of the local media awards for their food. While pretty short on atmosphere, they still sling some of the best round eye Chinese food around. Don't expect other Chinese people to come here for authenticity because it isn't that sort of place; it's strictly Americanized Chinese food. Don't expect dim sum.... More

The food here is always good, nice selection, lightning fast friendly service, and inexpensive. Maybe not the candlelight and tablecloth biz --it is extremely informal -- but for a nice tasty sit down meal or carryout it can't be beat --easily one of the best Chinese places around

We have been going to China Ruby for 10 years we love the reasonable prices and the quality of the food. We have never had a bad meal or experience. We love Tina and her award winning cozy Resturant.

My wife and I tried it July 29, 2011 - not a good idea. The food was just plain bad! The chicken, in the Almond Chicken looked like, but tasted worse, than reheated MaDonald's Chicken Nuggets. My wife was unable to eat hers. The Orange Beef was passable, but the bamboo in it was so tough they could be recycling... More

I just tried this place after being away for quite a while and found a much nicer, newly renovated restaurant. Along with the freindly service, great food and fantastic prices, this is a fantastic place to eat.

What attracts me to this place is that it is just like a Chinese restaurant like you would eat at in China on a side street in Beijing. It is a little bit gritty, the food is fantastic and cheap, and quite like what I had on several trips to China. Really it is more of "Diner" type restaurant if... More
